Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – “The top concern of the U.S. government should be protecting the American people,” U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX,) told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly last night regarding the unserious approach the Obama Administration has taken to combat ISIS and the action needed to prevent the spread of Ebola in the United States.
On the threat of ISIS:
“Unfortunately, what we have seen in six years of the Obama-Clinton-Kerry foreign policy has been a foreign policy that seems to focus on photo-ops and press releases, but not on concrete military objectives that are tied to our national security.
“Our objective here should be to take ISIS out, but instead this seems to be a campaign driven by political operatives and political mandates in the White House, rather than clear military objectives.”
“Today I visited Ft. Hood where hundreds of soldiers are preparing to deploy to West Africa and there’s a great deal of concern there among their families understandably.”
“The health professionals in Texas are preparing to deal with the potential of Ebola here but the first line of defense should be to prevent that terrible virus from coming here.”
